Connect Gateway
Gateway Between C2IP Camera Control Network and a Public Ethernet-based Network
The XML-based Connect Gateway operates as an independent platform that can simultaneously access the C2IP camera control network and a public network without compromising operational control of the cameras. By opening up control of high-performance cameras to external systems, your operators and facilities will develop more efficient studio workflows, so you'll increase productivity, and boost ROI. Connect Gateway is an XML-based platform, allowing any systems integrator to write user-specific camera control applications.
  • Gateway between external devices and camera control network
  • Diagnostic tool for LDX camera components in the C2IP network
  • Uses reliable and cost-effective Ethernet network infrastructure
  • Uses widely accepted XML as its message protocol

Amsterdam, The Netherlands (IBC — Stand 1.D11), September 09, 2010Grass Valley™ is adding the LDK Connect Gateway, a bridge to external control  systems, to its LDK camera control portfolio, which already benefits from the uniquely powerful C2IP control system. The LDK Connect Gateway provides open interactions from external devices to the camera, from automating set-up changes in camera functionality to reporting diagnostics.

LDX 2014 Cameras Catalog Datasheet

LDX Series
A unique line of advanced imaging cameras built around Xensium-FT CMOS imagers. These cameras have the highest sensitivity and image performance across different video formats, while offering a new level of business flexibility by using one hardware platform with a flexible GV-eLicense software upgrade implementation.
LDX Compact Series
An extension to the LDX Series of cameras with an identical image performance and a comparable feature set but in a smaller mechanical package. They are the perfect companions to the LDX Series cameras and bring a new level of image performance and business flexibility for all applications where cameras with a compact form factor are required.
LDX HiSpeed 3X and LDX XtremeSpeed 6X Cameras
Members of the LDX camera range set a new standard in high-speed image acquisition. They capture fast-paced sports action and emotion with unrivaled quality levels at high frame rates and with instant time-to-air. All captured frames can be permanently recorded, so not a single moment will be missed or lost.
LDX Compact HiSpeed 3X and LDX Compact XtremeSpeed 6X Cameras
The world's first self-contained high-speed cameras in a small form factor for space-constrained applications. As an extension to the LDX range of cameras, they produce the same level of quality from angles and in areas where high-speed cameras with a compact form factor are required.
